The worldwide first ELISA for the measurement of active Renin

The DRG active Renin ELISA Kit is a solid phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) based on the sandwich principle.

Renin (active) assay characteristics:

  • Assay Principle: Sandwich ELISA
  • Dynamic range: 0.8 – 128 pg/mL of active Renin
  • Total assay time: 3.25 hours
  • Sample volume: 50 µL EDTA Plasma or Serum
  • Crossreactivity with Prorenin: 0,69 %
  • Mean Intra Assay precision: 5.6 %
  • Mean Inter Assay precision: 6.8 %
  • Analytical sensitivity: 0.8 pg/mL

Clinical Revelance:

  • Differential diagnosis of hyperaldosteronism
  • Diagnosis of isolated deficit in mineral corticoids
  • Detection of Renin-producing tumors (kidney and lung cancer)
  • Diagnosis of malignant hypertonia (high blood pressure)
  • Monitoring of glucocorticoid therapy
  • Detection of physiological increase during pregnancy.more
